Modern economics covers a wide range of topics from inflation to the control of monopoly power, from the study of developing countries to the finance of multinational companies. The BA Economics degree programme reflects that breadth of interest in a flexible course designed to suit you if you wish to study a broad curriculum or to specialise in a particular area. The list of final year options is wide and choice may be widened still further by choosing one final year module from outside the Business School or by submitting a dissertation or business project in place of one of the options. Graduates enter a wide range of occupations, including economics, accountancy, business or academic careers.
No previous study of economics is required or assumed. If you possess an A level in Mathematics, you should be aware that there is a Single Honours programme in Economics with Econometrics. If you wish to study economics, but would prefer a lower mathematical content in the programme, you should consider BA Business Economics.
When I was originally looking at universities I knew that I wanted a campus university with its own community, somewhere where I could easily walk from the town to the university to my accommodation and that is certainly what I found when I came to Exeter.
